has tried to develop a working relationship on issues like terrorism, the global economy and now she is very upset and probably rightly so about the revelations that the u.s. has been tapping her cell phone now as far back as 2002 in the bush administration and the question is whether the president was ever briefed about this. if not, why not? why didn't he end it earlier? but the white house saying the president didn't know about it until recently and they stopped it. they're going to send a delegation here to get to the bottom of it. >> let's talk about what's happening here in washington. not everyone is angry about this. we have republican sasing these countries should be thankful. we heard from peter king earlier on meet the press saying the president should stop apologizing for these wiretaps. >> that's interesting. usually it goes along partisan lines. democrats say this does not fit the obama brand and what obama promised but republicans are saying this is part of national security. and the white house struck an interesting tone too. the president said we're going to try to r
know what's best. for example, we know we got to have a green economy. oils and fuels are the past he says, versus the fuel of the present everybody is using it. but we know that we have to get off all this stuff and create a new economy, which i have in my head and the experts have approved. and that's i think why obama care's going to collapse on its own. >> kirsten, speaking of noted liberals, elizabeth warren had this to say about the website problems. "getting people in and crucial. i know that's why it's so deeply upsetting that the government just dropped the ball on getting the website launched, but the answer is double down and get it fixed." a lot of focus here on the website, but today indicates that the substance could be a big problem. >> yeah. i think it is a problem when you have the president saying you can keep your plan if you like it. if he had said you can sort of keep your plan for double the cost, i don't think that very many people would have been excited about this. you need to actually tell people what you're going to do. grant it it is a minority. 14 million

, the global economy, and the changing nature of work. professor shakin, thank you for joining us on the program. >> let me ask you -- >> it's very nice to be here. >> let me ask you, first of all, about the bart contract and the terms being offered to union workers, including a 15.4% pay raise over four years. what do you think of the terms? good contract? >> i think it's a very good contract. it's fair to both sides. a lot of hard bargaining got us here, but it's something in which both sides can go forward and build on it in constructive ways for bart, for the public, and for each other. >> and for the first time they will be paying into their pensions 1% per year and then rising to 4% in the fourth year. also, health insurance premiums will rise from $92 to $129 a month. those sound equitable to you as well? >> they do. i think we have to put it in a bit of a context. for workers they didn't receive a wage raise over the last four years prior to negotiations, so it's a generous contract for the four years going forward, but it's also meant to pick up some lost ground where the
for the singer. >>> and welcome back. the economy still appears to be struggling and the government shutdown did not help. a number of new report this is week are expected to show the economy struggling to gain traction. with little economic growth, the federal reserve is expected to keep holding down interest rates. >>> retail rrs counting on this week's holiday to boost sales. hall wooen spending is second to christmas. we're likely to shell out $7 billion, double what was spent eight years ago. those haunted house attractions will scare up another billion. >> that's amazing. >>> hate your job? a new study says it will get better. >> thank the lord. >> resermers have found that older workers are the happiest. 9 out of 10 people aged 50 or older are satisfied or somewhat satisfied. >> only 35 more years to go until we're happy, diane that. >> keep on hanging on. >>> an accident prone grandpa topped the box office. bad grandpa, $32 million. gravity fell to earth with 20 pbt 3 million. and captain phillips with 11.8. >>> sad news from the music world this morning. one of the fathers of rock 'n' r

to be lackluster month after month. >> well, i mean, you know, you put a real big pall on the economy. you know, the numbers are fairly weak, but the earnings are really what's driving the equity market right now. and as we know, the stock markets tell us what's happening in the future, not what's had in the past -- not what's happened in the past. they're not forecasting data points. and i think that the market and the investors are telling you we're going higher. there are a few other things that work in the marketplace currently right now that people are trying to chase performance before year end, and that's also helping. i don't think it'll be derailed by the fed this week or, you know, these blips in the data points which the government seems to manipulate when they so choose to do so. lori: all right. i mean, apple is expected to report its fourth consecutive declining year-over-year earnings. you're on to something here. i think the street is very forgiving. these are extremely weak comparison quarters for a company, so it's not taking them that much to beat prior quarters. this is the
that are going get this economy growing. and that's where you hear us talking about the importance of tax reform, the importance of balancing a budget in ten years. the importance of spending reforms, spending reductions before just raising the debt ceiling. and yet on the aisle and president obama raising the debt ceiling with no conditions. a clean vote to raise the debt ceiling. and the reason we find ourselves in grid lock is because that's never going to happen. that's never going be acceptable to the republicans just to raise the debt ceiling without there being some conditions attached to that. and even president obama when he was senator and we don't need to add to the debt ceiling, add to the deficit. we need to take further action. it's easier to talk about what needs to be done versus the hard work of getting it done. so the reason we find ourselves where we are right now is because either very politically difficult decision that we have to make. it means that we're not going be able to just continue the current path that america has been spending way beyond its means for many, many y
bernanke pledged to keep pitching money into the economy until there is solid evidence the jobs market is turning around. two economic reports could move the market today. the federal reserve will release the industrial production numbers for september. it was delayed a few weeks because of the government shutdown. the national association of realtors releases its pending home sales tax index for september. ahead of all that today, stock futures this morning are higher, traders are looking to continue last week's major streak. thanks to all earnings, all three indexes are close to record highs. the dow is near 15,600, 1% from an all time high. the s&p opening about 1760. the nasdaq is 39,043. traders overseas are waiting until u.s. data comes out. asian markets are starting strong after wall street made so much money last week. nikki gained 2%. shanghai is up a fraction. >> the biggest name on the earnings list today is apple. apple's going to let us know how much money it made this quarter after markets closed. it was showing off the ipad air, but it's the iphone bringing in most of t
is a little more concerned about the economy than they might have been the previous two meetings, and there was a little bit of an indication in the last meeting. as we approach the holiday buying season, i think consumers and the fed are going to be a little concerned that you're going to have much momentum going into the end of the year. connell: record highs, also for i mentioned walgreens already, colgate-palmolive, kimer by clark. -- kimberly-clark. >> thank you. dagen: children under the age of 2 are using tablets and smartphones. i don't know how i feel about that. connell: well, they just know how to do it, so i guess the question is should they have it in front of them? i know. all right, people over 50, meantime, they're the happiest people at their jobs. showing really old people in these pictures. that's fine, right? they're happy. dagen: some of these folks appear to be in their 80s. connell: we're going to be really safe with the video. [laughter] dagen: the street not getting behind best buy's stock, charles payne will tell you why. and take a look at oil prices. a
to be a given. then, the fed showed to be pressed because the economy slowed down. the next thing you now, did you see the housing stocks last week. they were on fire. a couple of notes from home depot doing very well. gasoline, let's not underestimate the power of gasoline going down. it is kind of remarkable. a lot of good things happening away from congress, the president. i always have to say both. >> the further you get away from it, probably the better things are happening. >> let's talk about merck, excluding items that are 92 cents a share. that was ahead of wall street's forecast. revenues missed as sales of merck's diabetes drug fell. they were hurt by patent ex per rig ri expirations. i look at a note and he was questioni questioning these jenuvia franchise groeth. they believe there was a $60 million wholesale or inventor work done in the quarter. the corrective demand was probably close to 762 million with the prescription trends. >> i live in summit, new jersey. we have all been trying to figure out what the heck happened with that. $9 million taxpayer, huge amount of summit's bu
% of americans in our poll last week who said they think the economy is poor and all of the gains in the market. >> about half of americans are not invested in the stock market, they feel it 100% through the jobs. that's what the disconnect is all about. for investors, for workers who have a 401(k) in their, at their company, wow. what a great year it's been. today you have a pullback from the records last week but i want to show you, poppy, how far we have come this year. these year-to-date numbers are really, really good. the dow is up 19% this year, the nasdaq up 31%. the s&p 500, now that is the average most likely to reflect the stock portion of your 401(k), up 2%. last week we had a terrific week for some tech stocks, many of these that i'm about to show you are household names, they are widely held stocks, we'll hear more from the tech companies this week, apple reports earnings after the bell. look at amazon, google up a fraction. look at the price of the shares, above $1,000 a share. microsoft up about 2%. it was a terrific week for stocks. no surprise for me this morning you have a pu
years ago, it was double-digit growth. the amount of dollars was much smaller adding to the economy. now, you're growing at 7%, and the dollar value is very, very high. so i see tremendous growth and i don't see the slowdown. i really don't. when i visit various cities and companies in china. >> so how does the average investor, the retail investor at home play the markets you're suggesting? what's the best way for them to put their money to work? >> well, first of all you have to remember at least 30% of the global market capitalization is emerging markets. therefore they've got to look at 35% of tare portfolio in emerging markets. then don't forget frontier. i forget to mention africa is very exciting now. 3 to 4% in frontier markets as well because they're growing faster than emerging markets generally. >> you have a frontier markets fund but if people are not able to get into that, and you want to play in africa for the retail investor sometimes it's daunting, confusing. would you recommend are there etfes that can do that or better to buy say multinational corporations that are inve
is a sign of deflation. deflation. and weakness in the economy. i think the fourth straight month of declines in existing home sales could be behind that action we got the number earlier this morning. that plus an overall sense this economy is dead in the water. or will soon be because of a dearth of consumer confidence laid at the feet of washington which is only going to grow more rancorous not less as it seems to me politicians learned nothing from the most recent debacle. so many pols believe they're doing what's right for the country as consumers seem to be on hold and businesses stall here because of a horrendous partisan bickering that makes it much more appealing to do business -- guess where? overseas. on top of that, these consumer staples are huge beneficiaries of the decline of the dollar and raw costs, notably oil and gas. the estimates could be too low. lots of reasons for those stocks to keep rolling higher. we also saw the powerful tug of management execution on big stocks. today merck reported a number that looked on the surface like a nice beat. but when we went
, that brought the economy to its knees, and we've determined through our thorough investigation that there were no crimes," i don't think there was a thorough investigation. >> well, you wrote the other day that the federal judges seem to be losing patience with the banks. how so? >> there were a couple of cases that i highlighted because i thought it did show a new direction, a new sort of aggressiveness. you know, a lot of these judges -- bankruptcy judges in particular who have to see the bank's treatment of homeowners who've filed personal bankruptcy, they seem to really be getting fed up with some of the tactics that these -- the hardball tactics that the bank's litigants, you know, are doing in their courtroom. they've had to witness so many cases of banks running roughshod over borrowers whether it's by the banks not producing the documentation that proves that they own the note underlying the property, whether they produced erroneous figures about what the borrower owed. i mean, they have just seen chapter and verse over the last five years of really bad behavior by these banks. and i t
